He's President - And He's Black.

He's president, he's black — get over it

- Herald-Leader columnist

Barack Hussein Obama is president of the United States of America.

As such, he is due the respect that the highest office of the land commands.


Obama has been a magnet for these unfounded fears, these innuendos, these lies because he is black.

He has not done anything that would justify the outrage we are seeing in factions across this nation. Nothing. He hasn't had time. He has been in office less than eight months.

What this is about is that there are too many people who are afraid of what a black man might do because they have no idea what a black man is all about. The fear is unfounded and insane, fueled by our inability or lack of desire to interact with folks who are different.

There's a lot more to this editorial, and it's good - and it's published in a newspaper in Kentucky. Click HERE to read more.
